$2,960 was raised by sixth edition of Eat Out for Got Lunch Laconia

To The Daily Sun,

The sixth year of Eat Out for Got Lunch! Laconia Restaurant Week was a huge success.

The Advisory Board and all the volunteers would like to sincerely thank the 10 restaurants for participating and supporting our program. It was a great week of fun, food and friends while raising funds and awareness for our summer healthy lunch program.

We were able to raise $2,960 from the donations given by T-Bones/Cactus Jack's, Village Bakery, Burrito Me, Hector's, Patrick's Pub, The Eatery, Tavern 27, Brick Front, Holy Grail of the Lakes Region and Faro Italian Grill.

It costs $120 to feed a child a healthy lunch for the summer break. This donation will help feed 24 of Laconia's finest kids. We want to thank all the wonderful members of our community that went out to eat lunch/dinner at one of these restaurants to support a very important cause to help end childhood hunger in our city.

We also want to recognize and thank The Laconia Daily Sun for their continuing support with the advertising of this annual event.

Please visit our website www.gotlunchlaconia.com to learn more about this fabulous program and see how you can get involved or make a donation.

One year later, I'm still voting for ABC . . . anybody but Clinton

To The Daily Sun,

The race is on; it is Trump against Clinton. Here are some facts to think about.

— Former Secretary of State Albright said that Hillary's use of a private email would not kill anyone. How about Benghazi?

— Ninety-four million Americans were not in the workforce in May. When President Obama took office 80 million were not in the labor force. Hillary has promised us four more years of Obama.

— U.S. added 38,000 jobs in May, fewest jobs since 2010.

— Hillary Clinton supporters burn the American flag and raise the Mexican flag. Here is what Hillary said, Nothing.

— Hillary stated that she loves putting coal miners and mines out of business. This is another example of the Obama legacy.

— I found out that I am a white, non-college, non-educated person because I support Trump.

— Hillary wore a $12,495 Armani tweed jacket when she gave a speech on income inequality. Enough said!

— A community organizer is more qualified on the economy and global affairs than a successful businessperson. This is another example of the Obama legacy.

We do not need four more years of Obama. Hillary Clinton has no record to run on, so she has become an Obama surrogate. She is probably the worst secretary of state e.g., Benghazi, email scandal, etc. However, John Kerry is doing a good job to surpass Hillary as the worst.

From last year to now, I have said I was voting for ABC (Anybody but Clinton).
